  3. I have a Bosch Series 6 Varioperfect washing machine (brand new a year ago) which flashes error code E:23 and beeps on every setting and has locked with my clothes inside and does not start. Any advice?

      Lauren,
      Bosch Washer Error Code E23 = Aquastop activated
      The fault connected with “Error code E23 Aquastop activated” can’t be rectified by itself according to Bosch.
      You can research the “Aquastop activated” and see what is needed to clear the error.

  4. Bosch Error E81 folowed by E00.
    My 2yo Bosch washing machine flashed this error and no one at the bosch helpline could tell me what it was. BOSCH tech called back after following up (he didnt know either), E81 error indicates I-Dose Sensor error.
    He is ordering sensors prior to coming out.
    Hope this helps anyone who is also searching this error (very frustrating)

  5. I have problem with my washing machine waw32640eu.
    When I start program I get 2 error codes E81 and E00.
    After that the machine works fine..
    What does it mean?

    I have a Bosch front loader that occasionally shows a error code F18. Yes it understand that this could be a pump problem, can you advise if this could be a filter that allows drainage that is slowing the draining and if i can find a filter and clean it prior to getting a service person out?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Mike and Sara,
      If your Bosch washer has a front debris drain pump filter, clean it out. If not the pump may be clogged or jammed by a foreign object. Also check the drain hose to be sure it is not crimped or bent and therefore not letting the washer drain. What is the model number of your Bosch washer?

  7. Does anyone know what error code E:00 is on my Bosch maxx 6 washing machine? Can’t seem to find what this error relates to… Just switched it on and the error code on. It’s not mid cycle and the door is opening… I have cleaned out the drain. Any ideas?

      Kiavoush,
      Are you sure the error code is E33 on your Bosch washer? Is it possibly E3? What is the model number of your Bosch washer?
      -RR

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Kiavoush,
      The Bosch washing machine error code E3 means that the door is not seen as closed even if it is. This is due to a faulty door interlock switch. Replace the door interlock switch.

  8. I have a Bosch nexxt 300 series washer. The bearing went out and the tub stopped. I had a repair friend help me replace the rear tub and bearing and it worked except it skips the spin cycle.
    I went through the error codes and found 1 for the door being open that was me.
    And P:03 d:08. Motor sensor fail.
    Does this mean that my motor is bad?
    Is there a way to reset the machine like most things?
    Is there a button or breaker that I can switch?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Joe M,
      If your washer was working properly before replacing the bearing, you may have inadvertently disconnected a wire harness on the motor or on the control board when you had the washer apart. Retrace all wire harnesses and find one that is most likely loose. If that is not the issue let us know and we can assist from there.

  9. I have a Bosch Axxis + Washer WAS24460 UC with error code F:34. The door mechanism is making noise and locking then unlocking constantly until the error message pops up. How can I reset?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Chris,
      The error code of F34 on your Bosch washing machine is a door lock fault. Remove and replace the door lock assembly.
      The Bosch washing machine manual says this…
      Door lock is broken SAFETY ERROR – switch ON/OFF for reset Normal mode
      Door hook is stuck – washing program is aborted – check door lock
      Door is stuck – door is unlocked, if possible – check mechanism
      Stiff gasket – operator control actions are blocked – check wire harness

        how do I reset?
        what can I do?
        I checked and electronic package and is ok.
        Thanks!

        1. DIY Project Help Tips

          Gerti,
          Bosch washer F34 indicates a fault in the door lock circuit. The lock and/or main control board may have failed. Open the door and check that the door latch pin is ok. Is it being fully pushed to activate the lock? Let us know what you find.

  10. We have been getting an 01 error message indicating a water intake problem. We disconnected the hoses, checked/cleaned the screen caps and reconnected them. Looks like the error occurs during the rinse and spin cycles. Suggestions? Thanks.

  11. My Bosch washing machines has an error code E13 come up about half way through the cycle. What does the error code mean??

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Greg,
      Bosch washer error code E13 indicates that your pump is taking too long to empty. The drain filter and pump needs cleaned out. Check, clean, and run a test cycle.

  12. I have an compact washing machine from Bosch, type SE5P1B with the error code E14, it even gave E18 as well once! Hope you can help me out with what this fault means!

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Nikki,
      The E18 error code on a Bosch washing machine indicates a draining time out.
      This could happen for a couple of reasons:
      1) blockage inside the filter
      2) blockage inside the draining hose
      3) problem with the pump
      -RR

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Parvin,
      Bosch washing machine error code E23 means there is a drain issue. Have you cleared the filter, made sure the drain hose is not clogged or blocked, made sure the drain pump itself is not clogged or jammed?
      -RR

      1. I have a similar problem & can’t reset my Logixx8 washing machine. Is there an easy way to reset or does it need to be looked at as E:23 error is not going away ? Cheers , Mark

  13. I have a Bosch Washing machine (Model No: WAS3289EU). I get a F57 fault error code that shows in the digital screen. What is this exactly and how to resolve this problem?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Anne,
      Bosch washer error code F57 means there is a communication issue and or a logic problem with the control board. Turn the power off for a few hours and see if that resets the controls.
